About

The Right Now Needs Fund is an initiative from the Alliance for Education, and was launched in October of 2018 with a $2M/two year investment from Amazon. The Fund is designed to provide funds to address the most basic needs of Seattle Public Schools students, to ensure that students can come to school and focus on learning. The Alliance stewards and disburses the funds to all 102 Seattle Public Schools, in amounts reflective of the percentage of students in each school receiving free and reduced lunch.

The fund can be leveraged to provide support for the immediate needs of students not covered by existing school budgets. Funds can be requested by any school community member and requests are approved by the school principal.

The funds can be spent on addressing the basic needs of students. Examples of appropriate expenditures include warm clothing, adequate food, shelter, and necessary school supplies.
